Summer Writing Program: Online
Imagine a class where an enthusiastic and experienced teacher makes writing interesting. Where the expectations of college-level writing are presented clearly and concretely and you learn the techniques and approaches you need to write analytically. Where there’s plenty of time to practice new skills and see how they connect to strengths you already have. Where your teacher is in New York, and you and your fellow students are anywhere with WiFi. That’s what you’ll find at the Cooper Union Summer Writing Program.
Hands-on Learning and Practice, Even in an Online Course
The best way to learn to write better is to learn new approaches, practice them, and get feedback. That’s why our online course uses web conferencing technology to offer a real-time virtual class. It’s one thing to read about how to write an analytical essay; it’s another thing entirely to practice the skills you need, interact with fellow students and the instructor, and get immediate feedback. It’s one thing to read college-level texts; it’s another to discuss them and then use writing to generate and develop your ideas. No special technology required: all you need is internet access and a computer equipped with a camera and an audio microphone.
The unique Cooper Union Summer Writing Program combines the flexibility of online learning from anywhere with the benefits of a real classroom. Our instructors teach college-level writing and have experience working one-on-one with students.
In a typical class you’ll:
- Discuss the day’s reading
- Use writing to generate ideas and ask questions about what you’ve read
- Practice the skills you need to develop an argument
- Learn how to build an analytical essay
